I knew when I seen this new forum section that I wanted to post this topic.
If I could get all my fellow scroller to help, I’d like to make this a running topic.
Here, we can keep it going, much like other posts on Lumberjocks, like the Handplane of you Dreams topic.
Let’s post on a regular basis, and talk about, our current projects.
I will start by posting mine and run with it.
The only thing is though, let’s post only our scrolling projects.
That’ll keep it to our little section of Lumberjocks.
Sort of like the coffee shop for scrollers.

Anyone interested?

It is 20×40”.
It is based on a coffee table I built for my Mom a couple of years ago.
My wife loved the top, but we don’t use a coffee table.
So I’m making it a wall hanging by putting it in a large shadowbox frame.

Just got started using the scroll saw. I found a tutorial on the web and did this. My first attempt at intarsia.

The woods are maple, cedar for the paw pads, and aromatic red cedar for the scarf.

All of my pickguards are cut out on my scrollsaw. The only way to get great edges that need very little touchup before being inlaid into the top of the body of the guitar…

Ted you should be flying out of your house and checking this
one out. Get prices on the parts needed and you just might be
set for a long time.

Good luck.

Thank you all for your comments. I was starting to think this avenue was going to be a dead end.

Ted, I would be so all over that Hegner that wahoo posted. Oh, I forgot. Buying something requires money. Ted, I’d so be all heartbroken if that Hegner was in my area.

bhack, are you sure that’s your first intarsia piece? It looks great. It being your first though makes it look fantastic!

Tennessee, we’d love for you to post a photo or two here of the guitar picks.

I hope all of you are having a great Christmas.

William, that picture looks wonderful and thats a great idea about putting it in a shadow box.

Bhack, I have to agree that is a nice looking first project for intarsia.

I am working on a portrait of a fallen soldier. It’s part of a group of scrollers from portrait freedom. There are people that do the patterns and there are people that do the cutting. We then send the portraits the family that ordered the portraits. www.portraitfreedom.shutterfly.com

Discovering that my scroll saw can’t be made pinless and will be hitting craigslist in the new year. I recently saw a few deltas that were new or nearly so going for 100-150 and the wife is totally behind my upgrading.

I have been watching that Hegner for 2 weeks but can’t come up with the $300 or a way to get out to McHenry. I think it’s about 50 miles and I don’t have wheels. Anyway, it’s out of my reach.. too bad. I’ll probably find something close to me int he $100 range to get me started.

I use a Delta SS250. I bought it on clearance for less than a hundred bucks. I love it. I know I can’t afford one of the higher end saws. For ya’ll who have seen my work though, I think the Delta does alright.
I finished the wall hinging today.

Also, not scroll saw related, but I also finished up a frame for my son today.

It’s gotten late on me tonight. I will post these in the projects section as soon as I can.

That’s ensuring to know, William. I had a nice old 24” Craftsman industrial model a few years back, but didn’t know what I had and sold it really cheap. Kicking myself for that now.

I’ve been doing a lot of small projects lately. Mostly jewelry. Wooden crosses with wire and beads. I sold my hitachi scroll saw last spring and finally found an RBI Hawk on craigslist. It’s awesome! Unfortunately, The weather has been cold and I’ve been working full time. I bought some wood last week and want to start a large intarsia project soon.
